The usual suspects: J. Michael Bailey's supporters

Anyone who is investigating J. Michael Bailey's academic misconduct and bad science finds the same handful of names coming up praising him and his book over and over again.

Most are either involved with Toronto's eugenics hotbed, the Clarke Institute or are on the mailing list for a conservative-run eugenics think tank called the Human Biodiversity Institute. Ray Blanchard is connected with both.

Please see Lynn Conway's interim investigation on ideological connections of various people supporting Bailey's views on gender variance.

See also my detailed chart outlining some of Bailey's main ideological influences.
